Re: Question

I am going to try adding more wires to the harness... If you open the deck, and read the board near the harness, it has auxL, aux G, auxR. I am going to try it on mine, as i have a backup unit if it goes to shit. I'll probably post my results on the fosgate forums, where people know what they are doing...

Also, I have the rfx-8320, with my old 8220 faceplate which works perfect. they did not change much if at all from 82xx-83xx. It gives you more options for parts. ;)

Does the Kenwood KDC MP5032 have an aux input? If so, where is it?

Hi there,

Kenwood utilize the CD Changer plug in the back (which acts as a secondary Aux input), to operate external iPod devices.

This is done with the aid of an Adapter Lead - it has the 13-pin DIN plug on one end (plugs into the rear of your unit), and an iPod plug on the other end (plugs into your iPod).

Depending on the "Generation" of your external iPod device, you will need to buy the appropriate Kenwood adapter cable. These are: KCA-IP102, KCA-IP202 or KCA-IP302.

There may be some aftermarket (3rd party) cables that may do the same job.

Just ensure you read your Kenwood manual, as the Kenwood unit may be limited to the types of files (i.e. formats) it can read & play.

Hope this explains....

I want to connect my ipod to the aux inputs on back of unit

Hello gcd_sun,

The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.

The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.

To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.

Hope this helps.

There is no IP-BUS plug on the back of this model radio, nor is there a 3.5mm heaphone jack for auxillary input. The only way possible is through a wired FM Modulator.

My suggestion would be to replace the head unit. This model is a very inexpensive unit ($100retail) and can be replaced with a unit that is similar in features but with the addition of ipod input. You can get a radio with direct ipod control and charging for less than $150! Hope this was helpful.

How to hook up an ipod to my '07 Tacoma radio

There won't be a direct plug that will work, but you do have 2 options.

1. An aftermarket iPod interface module. Try PAC, Peripheral, or USA Spec. They may have one for your vehicle that will give you a direct audio in, as well as charging and possibly iPod control from the head unit.

2. A hardwired FM modulator. This would plug in through the car's antenna at the back of the radio, and you will probably find that it gives much better sound quality than the wireless FM modulators you've been using.

I tryed to use the red and white plug ins in the back to hook my ipod up but when i play my ipod i hear the ipod and either the radio or a cd is it possible for me to b able to hook my ipod up with out...

The RCA red and white plugs are OUTPUTS to connect to an amplifier. You are driving one audio source against another-which isn't good. There is no aux input to connect your iPod to. Copy your Ipod music to a CD-R instead and then play it in the pioneer.

Having problems hooking up an ipod.

The "bus audio input" works as an auxiliary input on some Sony decks, but not all. For the others, you need an auxiliary input adapter like this one: You can also use a Sony iPod adapter that will charge the iPod and let you control it through the head unit controls:

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal

Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: or an auxiliary input module: The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
